I have now completed my Autumn Footprints piece. Apart from getting two small brass eyelets at the top of each piece that is. Although I can 'do' eyelets, some do go wonky so I am going to take these pieces to a local canvas goods maker for a quality job.
I am rather pleased with this diptych. If you recall they use left-over pieces of cloth from previous projects. This presented restrictions which I may not have considered if I had more cloth available. I like the narrowness. I decided to go with the fact that one piece was shorter, and I like this too.
This project reminded me that tailors used to call their left-over scraps 'cabbage'. If they were very clever they could make another garment from these pieces and therefore claim more profit. This was not my intention but any irregular pieces of discarded cloth will now get more consideration than in the past.
